UCLG Peace Prize - 04.04.2019

Apply now and gain worldwide exposure for your town or region
Whether through twinning after World War II, or modern-day city diplomacy, towns and regions have consistently shown true leadership in building peace. Today, you can take your chance to win the UCLG Peace Prize for your local government’s outstanding initiatives.
The global award honours the implementation of successful projects in peacebuilding, conflict prevention, post-conflict reconstruction and reconciliation.
For instance, the last edition was won by the municipality of Kauswagan in the Philippines. With their From Arms to Farms programme, they were able to engage former rebels in organic agriculture.
Local and regional governments can apply for the 2019 edition until 30 April.
The most prominent initiatives will have the opportunity to be heard during the World Congress of United Cities and Local Governments in Durban, South Africa, in November 2019. Furthermore, the winner is going to be awarded with €20,000.
A promotional video can be found here. More information can be found on UCLG’s website. Feel free to contact the Peace Prize Secretariat for any further question.
